Essentially a two-person seat, the ‘Loveseat’ most likely originated from the need to accommodate the wider dresses that were in fashion towards the end of the 1700s. They began to be marketed as ‘loveseats’ in the early 1800s.
Not to be confused with the tête-à-tête, also a two-person seat (arranged in an S shape) conceived for face to face conversation, also known as a kissing bench, most likely originating from France that became popular during the Victorian era, albeit in an upholstered form.
Designed by David Irwin, the Hardy Loveseat works well as a standalone piece, part of a seating arrangement or tucked around a dining table.
